Experts think that payment blocking in the context of online gambling will not be able to be implemented

Potsdam, October 2014. Whilst the Conference of the Minister Presidents of the German Federal States will meet this week to discuss, among other issues, the Inter-State Treaty on Gambling and its implementation in Germany, a series of gambling providers are facing massive repression by the Federal States. The States intend to ban gambling offers on the internet, if necessary by blocking payment transactions – an instrument which, it is remarkable to note, has been advocated by the representatives of the state-run lottery associations, such as Michel Burkert, who plays a leading role in the Deutsche Lotto- und Totoblock, is the manager of Saarland-Sporttoto GmbH, and who wants to prevent transfers of funds to other countries.

By Younes Moussaoui and Justin Franssen, Kalff Katz & Franssen

The third version of the Dutch remote gaming bill and critical Council of State advice were submitted to Parliament in late July. Younes Moussaoui and Justin Franssen of Kalff Katz & Franssen provide an update and analysis for iGaming Business.

On 22 July 2014, the third version of the remote gaming bill, accompanied by very critical advice of the Council of State and the response of the State Secretary to this advice, were submitted to Parliament. The bill has been slightly adjusted in comparison to the second version of the bill published in March 2014. However, the State Secretary did not feel the need to amend several points considered by the Council of State in its review of the bill. Some of these points concern the incompatibility of the bill
with EU law, which will potentially play a significant role during the upcoming debates in Parliament.
